just brilliant! I always feel worried for people when they flash their ipod headphones all over the place. What a great alternative!

I just got my iPod last week and I just started knitting its new headphone sleeves today. I have never knit with such tiny needles before (size 1) I think it may be giving me a headache.  Huh  It's also my first attempt at an iCord and the part where the yarn crosses over to the other side is really loose. It is logical that it would be loose, but how do you make it the same tightness all the way around? Any advice??

Just make sure to pull the yarn tight around the back...

finally finished! it was my first time working on needles so small (#1 DPN's), and my first time working in the round on DPN's, so the fork is slightly odd, but overall, really good for my first time. i picked the yarn because i think it looks like television snow. lol.

All of the headphone cozies you guys have made look SWEET.  I'm wondering if there is a way to make a version that you can slide on and off of the headphone cords...  I think my iPod would like a little wardrobe of headphone-sweaters in many different colors!  I could even make a wee closet with wee hangers to store them! 

Ok, I'm getting ahead of myself.  I think I might try to knit these in K1P1 rib, with 4-6 stitches on tiny tiny dpns, in some kind of yarn that is a bit stretchy.  I wonder if it would be stretchy enough to pull over the earpieces...  I'm envisioning 3 separate pieces - one for the section below the fork in the wire, and one each for the sections above the fork.  Anybody tried to do this in ribbing instead of i-cord?

but wouldn't you have to seam the entire thing together? i feel like it would either be too thick, or not stretchy enough. i'd love to see the outcome, though!

I took up knitting this week and this is the first thing I did! I used wide shiny ribbon and size 41/2 needles, so it's really chunky! I'm in the process of knitting up a matching cosy for my new em-pee-fwee.

For non/novice-knitters, would a "Knitting Nancy" type thing work?

i used worsted weight yarn for my headphone sleeves, since my wire seems flimsy and needed some bulking up. here it is:
